Can Thermage damage your eyes?
Thank you for writing – I’m sure others would like to know this! The answer it no…….it really can’t as long as the tip itself doesn’t get put accidentally on the eyeball instead of the eyelid.
Basically, that’s why the eye sheilds are important. They are put into the eye like a contact lense with numbing drops and with cushioning gel (like ultrasound gel). These are important for eyelid treatments whether Thermage or a laser. Just in case you were to open your eye at exactly the wrong moment, the tip wouldn’t touch your eye. It would just touch the eye sheild.
Also, the small amount of heat that the Thermage eyelid tip generates isn’t enough to heat the eye itself.
I hope this helps,
